Baked Southwest Sandwiches

I like to prepare these tasty sandwiches whenever I have a few friends over for an informal lunch. The combination of toppings is out of this world. I'm often asked for the recipe. -Holly Sorensen, Reedley, California

    A huge favorite with our family of 8 since it was first published in 1996! I've prepared these sandwiches, doubling the recipe countless times over the years. Fast & easy & delicious. Serve with a salad or chips, & you'll make everyone happy! Don't change a thing!

    My husband loves this meal. After we eat, he grabs chips and used the left overs as dip.
